ABOUT THE LIONS
The Lions Motto is “We Serve." For 89 years our Club's members have followed this mandate through the creation and support of a wide variety of facilities and service projects.
While Sight is the major institutional goal of Lionism, our bylaws also direct us to take an active interest in the Civic, Cultural, Social and Moral Welfare of our community.
We welcome membership interest from any man or woman of legal majority, good moral character and community reputation who recognizes Lions as a vehicle through which they can make a contribution to the community, expand their acquaintances and make some wonderful friends.
The Lions are the largest service club organization in the world with over 1.3 million members. The members of our club represent all walks of life: employees, business people and retirees - male and female members. Though we come from every corner of the social, economic and religious spectrum, we are united in our desire to provide aid and support to those in our community who are in need. If you are motivated to offer help to your neighbors who can benefit from it, you will find many opportunities for personal fulfillment by joining with us.
Kure Sister City Exchange Students Farewell Party
On August 19th we bid farewell to the three exchange students from Kure, Japan, after a one month stay with local host families in the Bremerton area. The gathering was hosted by Bob and Pam Battin at their home. You could say that it was also a welcome home party for the three Bremerton students, who had recently returned from their stay in Kure. Also in attendance were several young adults from Bremerton who themselves are former exchange students to Kure; and they started things by telling us about their experience in Kure, and how they have benefitted from it. All six of this year's students were then greeted by King Lion Margie Torbron; and all of them offered their gratutude for the opportunity afforded them by the City of Bremerton and our Lions Club. Both groups then performed a song in the language of their hosts ... by far the hit of the day. Everyone had a grand ole time! Here are some images from the festivities:
